The morning started out dark, overcast but cool, in the 50’s. As the dawn sky emerged, it was dark gray with thick clouds. As the morning progressed, the sky changed to lighter shade of grey except for a small slitter of clear sky over the Sierras, which was red in color. The clearing changed colors from red to orange and to gold color as the sun tried to peek through the clearing. As the sun ascended it was shielded by the clouds and the clearing changed color to yellow and to red. Attended Spanish lessons at 7:30 AM. The rabbit was by the basketball court again. Finished walking 6 miles at 9:15 AM, in 1 hour 17 minutes and 3 seconds. Average walking times were: 12 minutes and 9 seconds per mile (milla) or 49 seconds per lap (vuelta).

She closed the ring yesterday for the 26 consecutive days. She walked 7165 steps, step length was 15.1 inches and symmetry was 82%. She reminded me that Karlee and Chris will be visiting me today. Talked to Doris at 9:50 AM: Doris is well. It was raining heavily in the Bay Area. She asked about the rabbit, I told her it was out there again and I feed it with apple cores. She reminded me to call Karlee for ETA for visitation. She completed her peacock design and is adding more designs and colors. She said she has more than 7200 steps yesterday, that was the 26 consecutive days she ahs closed the ring on her iPhone. I asked her if she will close the ring again today. She said she will try to close it again. I told her I will host and attend ACE Classes tonight and will administer the final examination for Stress and Your Body. I told her I have to grade the examinations too. We had to cut the conversation short because of Census count. Census count at 10:00 AM. We had to recount it again to get it right. Had some nuts, nutty bar and an apple for snacks. Talked to Karlee at 10:30 AM: Karlee was getting over a flu but is feeling much better, their ETA is 12:30 PM. She wondered if Doris asked me about a retirement home. I told her it is just about saving four driving times and she understand the situation. Karlee was counting her change for the visitation. Showered at 10:30 AM and changed to BOP uniform. Went to the library to work on Spanish lessons. Karlee and Chris arrived at the visitation room at 12:30 PM: Karlee and Chris are well. They used the wrong registration number for me. CO Cruz was working in visitation and we had the registration number sorted out. They just got back form Disneyland with Chris Niece from Tasmania, Australia. This is Chris’s third week with Impossible Meat. He is enjoying his new job. They are planning to attend Crystal’s wedding in Australia. They were working while on vacation in Disneyland. We had Dr pepper, Gatorade, Frito Lay corn chips, potatoes skin chips and snickers for snacks. I told them that the key to the safe was in my black computer bag. Doris was able to open the safe with the keys to get her passport. I hope she replace the battery for the safe. I told them that Doris had closed the ring on her iPhone for 26 consecutive days and she was walking without her cane during visitation.
